Reoperation for pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta presents a surgical challenge. Instituting femorofemoral bypass and establishing hypothermic circulatory arrest is a well-known strategy, although not free from complications. We report a case of mycotic pseudoaneurysm after coronary artery bypass in a 53-year-old man, at the site of previous aortic cannulation, and review the surgical strategies proposed to manage this pathologic entity.
